Amsoil GNCC – Wiseco John Penton – Round 7

By | GNCC | No Comments

The AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series presented by Maxxis, an AMA National Championship, continued today, May 28, in the Buckeye State with the 27th Annual Wiseco John Penton GNCC held at the popular Sunday Creek Raceway in Millfield, Ohio. After facing hot and humid conditions for the first time this season, it would be N-Fab/Maxxis/AmPro Yamaha/Lonestar/MXP’s Walker Fowler taking the overall win. Maxxis/Fly Racing/HMF/Ye Olde Cycle Barn/Suzuki’s Chris Borich and Coastal Racing/MSR/Maxxis’ Brycen Neal would battle it out until the very end to round out the overall podium in second and third.

CST/LSR/Induction Solutions/DeRisi/SG/Tire Blocks’ Adam McGill had moved into second at the conclusion of the first lap. While Fowler would maintain the lead, McGill would slowly start gaining on the defending champion throughout the first half of the race.

With Fowler and McGill off in the distance, N-Fab/Maxxis/AmPro Yamaha/Lonestar/MXP’s Cole Richardson was in the mix for third with Neal and Borich. The three would continue the close racing throughout the entire two-hour race.

Once Fowler took the white flag he found himself being pushed by McGill who was just a few seconds behind. McGill would end up getting stuck around the three mile marker where Fowler would lead the way to the finish claiming his fourth win of the season.

“I ended up getting caught up with a lapper and had to go back down the hill in order to try and get back up the hill climb,” said McGill. “Once I got to the bottom my quad wouldn’t start back and a fan was able to lend a hand and help me get it started again.”

Unfortunately Richardson would end up suffering from a mechanical issue on the last lap ultimately taking him out of a podium contention where he would end up finishing ninth in XC1 Pro and 17th overall.

While Fowler would cross the finish line first, Borich and Neal would continue the fight, but now for second and third with McGill and Richardson out of the race. Once they hit the famed Sunday Creek Motocross track, the two would exchange positions back and forth, with Borich taking the last double jump with an extra boost to cross the line in second with Neal following in third overall.

McGill would end up rebounding to finish just off the podium in fourth. Show Hauler/Canyon Motorsports/GBC’s Landon Wolfe landed his first top-five finish of the season in fifth, with Precision/Axis/Maxxis-backed Jay Shadron having an equally impressive ride in sixth.

The 2016 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series continues with round eight on June 11 and 12 with the Dunlop Tomahawk GNCC at the Seneca Highland in Odessa, New York.

Amsoil GNCC – Limestone 100 – Round 6

By | GNCC | No Comments

Fowler would lead throughout the second lap, but would quickly begin to feel the pressure from Borich. While the battle for the lead was shaping up, McGill was busy working his way up from a ninth place start. By the second lap McGill found himself in the mix for the lead with Fowler and Borich. As the race wore on, Borich would finally work his way around the defending champion Fowler as he lead the pack.

Once the white flag came out, the entire XC1 field stepped up their game. With multiple lead changes between Fowler, Borich and McGill the racing action was nothing short of exciting. Neal was sitting just a few seconds behind in fourth. As the top three came through the pro pits for the last time it would be Borich and McGill battling it out for the top spot with Fowler right behind them. Borich would end up heading into a turn too fast and clipping the berm, ultimately flipping him off the quad. McGill saw the open rut and capitalized on Borich’s mistake taking the inside line and the overall win.

“I didn’t actually lead the race until the last lap,” said McGill. “I just had to ride a smart race and my bike setup was just perfect from the tires to the motor. Once Chris’ back end picked up I saw the inside line and just drove it through for the win.”

ProX ATV MX – Ironman Raceway – Round 4 – Natalie takes 9th

By | AMA | No Comments

Crawfordsville, IN – Hetrick made quick work and moved into second on the second lap, with Upperman remaining in third. Perhaps one of the best battles of the race was for the fourth place position between Rastrelli, Maxxis/Root River Racing/JB Racing’s Thomas Brown and Maxxis/FLY Racing/Baldwin Motorsports’ John Natalie. The three racers continued to switch places throughout the latter half of the race.

Wienen would end up seeing the checkered flag first followed by Hetrick and Upperman. With the battle for fourth winding down with a couple of laps remaining it was Rastrelli taking the position followed by Natalie in fifth and Brown in sixth.

Unfortunately both Brown and Natalie would have issues ultimately taking them out of the second moto where they would finish eighth and ninth overall.
